Some of the best motorsport competition I've had in my inexperienced life. I started '07 on 225/50 R-S2s and didn't love them. Transitional response wasn't there compared to the 205 RT-615 (and especially not the old RT-215) which I had run previously. Still though, just because Hankook had the balls to produce a 225 15" size I managed to keep up with you through raw lateral grip. If we had data acquisition I'm sure our speeds and lines looked like we were racing on different courses. Then I messed up everything by buying an E36.
Then again there was that first auto-x with said E36 (Aug 07?) when I set FTD on Federal 595s past Randy in the HPF M3. Randy and I both shaved 2-3 full seconds off our best runs for the final 5th attempt, which I don't think either of us could have hoped for. Absolute balls-out driving.
@John I saw the Solo 1 Nov 20 event, awesome idea. Get that event going next spring/summer!
